objects context history who cares



‘Industry’ is nothing without metal. In his work, the artist explicitly captures this relationship by referencing the patterns and forms of industrial machinery.

The steel Trunnion Vessel is based on a Bessemer Converter, patented by Henry Bessemer in 1856. The Bessemer was the first inexpensive industrial process for the mass-production of steel. It removes impurities with oxidation, blowing air through the molten iron. This vessel is produced by forging, hot forming, and machining.

The concept of ‘service’ is central to the artist’s work; purpose provides satisfaction. A focus on technique, execution and detail ensures that each object demonstrates integrity and vision.
